Strengths and weaknesses

This indicator is a direct measure of the distribution of drug packets. It does not account for which regimen was distributed nor for the quality of the treatment, the adherence or many other important factors. However, in the scaling up of access to treatment, this simple indicator is an important marker of progress.
